Heartfelt Creations Chateau Gate Collection @ Dutch Paper Crafts

Hello Friends!
Darlene from Dutch Paper Crafts just released another video and has now the Heartfelt Creations Chateau Gate Collection for sale! This is an awesome release and excellent for all door & window lovers! It includes beautiful gate/door and window stamps as well as gorgeous scenic stamps. And of course this is a stamp & die set which means you can get matching dies made by Spellbinders with the pre-cut stamp sets. Get the whole set for a special price or pick just the ones you like best. But you better hurry this great release is flying off the shelves!

I made 5 creations all together with this set and today I like to show you two of them. The rest will follow. You can also see all my creations as well as my DT-Teamie's Jennie's in Darlene's video HERE.

Everything is colored/airbrushed with Copics. I used the Chateau Gateway stamp HCPC 3441 but didn't ink up the whole stamp. Just the gate and part of the wall. This is a huge stamp and I know some are afraid using these large stamps. There's no need to be. I wanted to show how nice it can look and how easy it is to use just parts of it. The topiary tree is from the Doorway Trimmings Set HCPC 3446 and I cut it out by hand to use it as an entrance decoration. I also used the leave dies, which come with the Chateau Gate dies HCD 718, to decorate the other side of the gate.

Here is a close-up on the door


My second creation is a tag:

First I stamped the scene with the table (set HCPC 3444) onto Make it Color card with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored it using my Copics. Then I stamped the open window from the Grand Portal set (HCPC 3442) onto acetate with Staz-on black ink. I adhered the acetate over my stamped image. Then cut out the large curved window from the Chateau Gate die set and just used the embellished frame.
The leave die is from Marianne design and not part of the release but also available at Dutch Paper Crafts. It's called Branch Forest LR0150. Sentiment, flowers and ribbon are from my stash.

This really is a very versatile stamp/die set for many different occasions. And even great for making the always more difficult male cards. Check out Darlene's video HERE and get inspired. Oh and I just saw that on the Heartfelt Creations store site the dies are out of stock already until the end of March! But Darlene still has some in stock so you better be quick getting yours! I'll guess they will be gone soon as well! 

Thanks for visiting me today and please come back Thursday
for more Heartfelt Creations Inspiration from me!

Luv 'n hugs,


Thanks so much for taking the time and leaving me some love! It's greatly appreciated and just made my day! :-)
